Native Americans in the Columbia River Basin

Native Americans, so central to the history of the region, are not included in this ethnic history collection. Early on we recognized the important work by several regional archives, such as the University of Washington, to digitize their considerable collections on American Indians. Links to some of these important resources are provided below. The Columbia River Basin Ethinic History Archive focuses on relatively recent migrants to the region--people identified as having African, Asian, European, or Latin American heritage--whose archival documentation is less extensive.
